Last weekend Kate & I attended RAW Talks hosted by Natural Talent Alliance at Hotel Arts in Calgary and several comments resonated with me, especially now that the #100daysnastywomen project is coming to a close:
What does your art do? Does it empower, encourage, inspire, unite, heal, or speak up for the voiceless? It should remind others that they are worthy of love.
~ Everline Aboka
Write down everything. Put everything down on paper.
~ Matt Blais
How to be creative...listen to music, think like a child, take a break.
~ Wayne Logan
I really wish I would have taken more notes as I was inspired by actor Peter Skagen and photographer Edward Ross who, through sharing personal experiences, encouraged artists to be true to themselves above all in order to find that "sweet spot." And also dancer/choreographer Natalka Lewis shared her emotional story about perseverance. An incredible day.
